Mom confession: Even after laundry is done, and there is ZERO reason why the ironing board needs to be left out...I move it over to the “mom” chair (my comfy rocking chair no one else is allowed to sit in) because the ironing board makes for a very convenient and extra long side table. #worksmarternotharder #momconfessions .

Last week I was so lucky to be asked by @dearmomconference to write a ‘Dear Mom’ letter. Talk about an amazing group of women coming together to support one another! Thank you Mercedes for this opportunity ❤️
📷 @morganremery —————————————————
Dear Mom,

Hi I’m new, like you. Or maybe you aren’t new. Maybe decades ago medical professionals tried to convince you, you were never going to be able to provide the care your child would require, or give them the education your child would need, they told you, you weren’t ever going to be enough for your child. And you said to Hell with them. YOU became your child’s speech therapist, YOU became their physical therapist, YOU became their educator, YOU roared the loudest for your child. 
You don’t know me, and I don’t know you. But I know your strength. Your strength carried me and my husband through our agonizing hospital stay, scared of the those two little words. YOUR knowledge wrote the articles we poured over in that hospital room. YOUR words crafted the beautiful stories we read. YOUR creativity captured the joyful photos we saw. YOUR cleverness made up the hashtags we searched. What was it like using the hashtag #theluckyfew #downsydromeisbeautiful for the first time? 
I search for words to describe the 409 days and counting that we have been blessed with Paloma. Our precious dove, who when she smiles I am convinced I see a glimpse of our Creator. 
Dear New Mom, find rest in the strength of the ones who came before you. It’s okay to worry, to be sad, or to have fear; we have all experienced those feelings at times. You are not alone, for now find joy in the innocence of your perfect baby. Don’t let fear rob you of these precious moments, I hear they go by fast. 
To all the other Moms, today I have a voice because you used yours.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. 
Paloma’s Mama Genoa

Mom confession: I let the dogs in the house when Paloma eats so they can eat the food that falls on the floor.

“I’ve often said there’s nothing greater for the inside of a man, than the outside of a horse.” Ronald Reagan 
So thankful for this animal, I truly believe Tucker was brought in my life to help restore my spirit. A connection that if I try to describe will  sound exaggerated. Gary always called him “your boy”. “Genoa, I took your boy out today.” “Genoa, how’s your boy doing?” Love you Tucker, thanks for everything. I hope you got as much happiness from us as we did from you ❤️

Everyday is a new chance to learn something, to better yourself, to humble yourself. Everyday my daughter does those things for me hahaha. All it takes a good scratch from her tiny nails or good twist of the nipple to get my head on straight again hahaha. Tomorrow is World Down Syndrome Day! A year ago I couldn’t believe there was a day out there to celebrate our children, siblings, and friends who have an extra chromosome. I thought “did they do this for me?”*spoiler alert 🚨 they didn’t. How lucky we are to be part of this huge family, Down syndrome is the most beautiful thing that has happened to the Walls family. 📷 @morganremery .

How does my one year old get so filthy?! Oh yeah because I let her play in the dirt, eat baby food with her hands 🤦🏻‍♀️, pet all the animals, I do however, try to intervene before she gets the the dog’s water bowl...because well, that’s just sick. But kids will be kids, I hear boys are even messier? Boy mamas do I hear an Amen?! But I’m sure somewhere in the ‘How to Raise Your Child’ book there’s a chapter about letting your kids get filthy in the dirt. .
. .
Good thing she enjoys a bath time because I don’t know what I’d do. Is it weird that I’ve highjacked Paloma’s body wash because it’s smells so good and doesn’t bother my skin? Nobody tell her. { @babobotanicals }

It’s a friendly way of starting conversation about a child or baby. I know that, I’m not complaining AT ALL. I love meeting and talking to people. But I constantly fight the urge to explain or justify to strangers when they ask why Paloma isn’t doing ‘x,y, or z’ yet or why she doesn’t have teeth yet, or whatever it is. She’s doing awesome! She’s doing exactly what Paloma is capable of doing right now. In fact she’s killing it if you ask me. Paloma is on her own timeline not mine, not the damn stranger at the grocery store. Hers. And she’s killing it. So when she started pulling herself up and taking small steps...I lost it. Look how stoked she is!! (Also this romper, amiright?! 🌼 See story for promo code!! @sunshineandspools )

This year I promised myself to start saying no, but I have failed miserably. The past month I’ve been battling severe anxiety due to managing 4 very active email accounts, IG dms about jobs, FB messenger, text messages and the occasional voicemails. It’s to the point where I have to psych myself out to open my emails. 
I’m going to start saying “no”, so I can start saying “yes” to the things I need in my life.  It’s best for Paloma, for my husband and for my mental health. Just had to say it out loud I guess for accountability. #clearyourmind #clearyourheart .

Happy First Birthday little dove. 🌼
This little sass machine is the best thing that has ever happened to Drew and I, a blessing beyond anything we thought we deserved. I want to be better person to prove I’m worthy of being her mama. Her smile, laugh, her voice, level of non stop energy and so much more proves to me how perfectly planned she is. Watch out world, here she comes. .

Love this piece by Ryshell Castleberry 
My wife does not work
My wife doesn't work!!!
Conversation between a husband (H) and a psychologist (P):
P: what do you do for a living Mr. Rogers?
H: I work as an accountant in a bank.
P: Your wife?
H: She doesn't work. She's a housewife.
P: Who makes breakfast for your family?
H: My wife, because she doesn't work
P: What time does your wife wake?
H: She wakes up early because it has to be organised. She organizes the lunch for the children, ensures that they are well-dressed and combed, if they had breakfast, if they brush their teeth and take all their school supplies. She wakes with the baby and changes diapers and clothes. Breastfeeds and makes snacks as well.
P: How do your children get to school?
H: My wife takes them to school, because she doesn't work.
P: After taking their children to school, what does she do?
H: Usually takes a while to figure something out that she can do while she is out, so she doesn't have to pack and unpack the carseat too many times, like drop off bills or  to make a stop at the supermarket. Sometimes she forgets something and has to make the trip all over again, baby in tow. Once back home, she has to feed the baby lunch and breastfeed again, get the baby's diaper changed and ready for a nap, sort the kitchen and then will take care of laundry and cleaning of the house. You know, because she doesn't work.
P: In the evening, after returning home from the office, what are you doing?
H: Rest, of course. Well, I'm tired after working all day in the bank.
P: What does your wife do at night?
H: She makes dinner, serves my children and I, washes the dishes, orders once more the house, makes sure the dog is put away as well as any left over dinner. After helping children with HW she gets them prepared to sleep in pajamas and the baby is in fresh diapers, gives warm milk, verifies they brush their teeth. Once in bed she wakes frequently to continue to breastfeed and possibly change a diaper if needed while we rest. Because she doesn't have to get up for work. [Continued in comments]

Oh my goodness. A week from Wednesday this little sugar will be a 1 Year Old! How magical and crazy and scary and beautiful this year has been. They say it flies, but I didn’t know they meant it. Big things are in store for this family for 2018 as we navigate through what it looks like to have a 1 year old, job changes, traveling and whatever else life wants to hand us. Bottom line, God is good! ••••• Sidenote••••
Any car seat recommendations? We’re buying a new one next week for our....One Year Old!!!

You know those days where you’re so tired, that without a sip of alcohol you feel Spring Break drunk?! Yeah. That was me yesterday...thank you to my clients who just smiled and nodded even though I’m pretty sure my sentences didn’t make sense. 
BUT—totally worth it. #momlife .
